A Message from Principal McHale

The 2020-2021 school year begins on Monday, August 10th.  The first nine days of school will be delivered via LaunchEd@Home for all students. 

Tentative student schedules are available in Skyward.  Please understand that the counselors have been working overtime to adjust student schedules based on student enrollment choices.  Schedules are subject to change.  Due to schedule preparation, counselors will not be answering voicemails and emails.  We are unable to accommodate any requests for schedule or teacher changes at this time.  On Monday, August 10th we will publish a link on our website and social media to report schedule errors only.  We appreciate your understanding.

Campus Welcome will be virtual this year!  Students are able to find the SRMS Student Course on the Canvas dashboard.  You will find a campus tour and teacher/staff welcome videos within the course modules.  We look forward to introducing ourselves to you and hope that you enjoy the tour!

What do I do on Monday morning to attend school?  Please read through the “What do I do day one” document-What do I do day one.pdf  and the LaunchEdPlanner document before Monday morning.  First period begins at 9:30am on Monday morning.  All OCPS students will be attending school via the LaunchEd@Home platform.  Although we have worked hard to minimize all technical issues, please know that there may be some on Monday.  I will update parents via phone call and/or email as technical issues arise.  It is a good idea to ensure the laptop is charged and your student has practiced accessing Canvas BEFORE Monday morning.  Visit canvas.ocps.net for more information on using Canvas as a parent.

If you need directions on how to access LaunchPad/Skyward/Canvas parent accounts a very helpful video can be found on the OCPS webpage by clicking on Students and Parents and then clicking the Skyward tab.

We appreciate your cooperation and understanding as we work together to help our students be successful during these challenging times.


Incoming students who need to check out a laptop can come to the school car loop from 1:00pm-3:00pm on Monday 8/10.  There are no appointment sign-ups for these days. Students who are having a technical issue with their OCPS laptop can schedule an appointment using the link


Campus Welcome will be digital for all students this school year.  Teachers have recorded a welcome message for students in the SRMS Student course.  Once that course goes live you will be able to view your teachers’ messages.

OCPS has a wealth of information on their website to help your family navigate the upcoming school year.  Please visit their website for extensive question and answer documents-www.ocps.net.  You may also see helpful links to document son the OCPS webpage below.

7th-Grade Immunizations

OCPS parents of rising 7th-grade students, the state of Florida requires that all students entering 7th-grade must have the Tetanus-diphtheria-pertussis (Tdap) immunization. Your child MUST have this immunization in order to start the 7th grade. We want to let you know the Florida Department of Health in Orange County is offering a special session for 7th-grade students to receive their required Tdap vaccine at no charge starting May 18. To schedule an appointment please call 407.723.5004 and press 2. For information, you can visit orange.floridahealth.gov. Your child’s immunization will be documented on the updated form you will need to submit to your child’s school before they can attend class for the 2020-21 school year. This is also an excellent opportunity to have your child’s immunization records reviewed by a health care provider to ensure your child’s vaccines are up-to-date.
